A Case For Black Turtlenecks: How To Wear Spring's Most Non-Basic Basic

We know, turtlenecks don’t exactly strike you (or anyone who grew up wearing ribbed, pastel-colored ones to elementary school) as fashionable. But with at least a month more of winter ahead of us, we’re here to show you that the right turtleneck–along with the right styling and the right accessories–can not only look cool, but also sexy. Here’s what you need to pull a turtleneck off:

Step 1: The Fit. It’s crucial that you choose a form-fitting, solid-colored turtleneck in a lightweight fabric that has a bit of stretch. We’re big fans of this jersey top by Splendid, but you can browse a few similar choices in the slideshow.

Step 2: The Styling. Because your turtleneck is so basic, the rest of your outfit should make a statement. Try tucking a tight, curve-hugging black turtleneck into trendy leather jogging pants or a pair of patterned pajama trousers and finishing the look with heels. Black leather shorts with tights and heels is another sexier option. As for jewelry, a statement necklace is obvious, so we suggest wearing stunning drop  or chandelier earrings instead.

Step 3: The Hair. Last but not least, you must consider your hair. Gorgeous blond locks look amazing when worn loose against a black turtleneck, but a sleek top knot or low chignon is a no-fail no matter what your hair type or color.

Okay, ready to give the turtleneck another try? Shop our most versatile picks in the slideshow.
